The Bulls should have never fired Scott.

John Paxon should have been cut along with Skiles. He is the one who doesn't know enough about personnel chemistry to bring players to the Bulls who any good coach can mesh into a consistently good winner. It was Paxon who kept the players in a state of flux, for the first few games, over the confusing non-deal to bring Kobe Bryant to the Bulls for the whole team and Michael Jordan's statue. The team suffered as a result of the suspense, and I suspect some of them may be playing just well enough to remain viable for the next round of trades. Look around the NBA for all the former bulls who are top performers elsewhere and you have to ask question the trades that have been made. So the Bulls will soon windup with as many ex-coaches as the Bears have ex-quarterbacks.
